    First time that I'm going to do this on here. I've done Q Views on social media but I want to throw one on here for you guys!

    I'm doing pulled pork tomorrow morning. Got an 8 pound butt and I plan to start between 8-9 AM to finish around 6 PM for dinner. I usually brine with Captain Morgan and some seasons. This time, I'm going with injecting the night before instead. I'm also going with the Chris Lilly recipe for injection and rub. Tonight, I made a jar of the rub and injected the meat. I also make a squirt bottle of Captain and Apple Juice (250 ml CM, 500 ml AJ). I used the leftover CM and added it to the injection recipe and poured it over the butt.

    Getting the butt ready. I spray it with my CM and AJ mix then put the rub on it. I use a brush to spread it around to get it all over. While my wood chips soak, I'm putting it back in the fridge to sit before I goes in the smoker.

    Awesome PP! 
     
  13. That recipe sounds pretty dang good. I like the captain injection idea. Do you have much taste of it left after it hits IT?

    You really don't taste it. I think it gives a little spiced flavor but it's not a strong liquor taste

    Oh man...really nice looking PP!!! Did you serve it with any finish sauce or bbq sauce?

    I did not. It was so tender and moist that there wasn't a need. My father-in-law brought some sauce he got from a farmers market. Zesty Peach BBQ sauce. That was pretty good with it!
